When planning a meeting, it’s important to consider the basic needs of your attendees. Providing food at work meetings is an excellent way to keep attendees focused and content. However, the type of food you offer can make a big difference to your meeting’s success. For example, providing heavy foods like pizza or hamburgers can make your attendees tired. This makes it harder for them to stay focused on the meeting. A few carefully planned snacks will keep your attendees satisfied while improving their attention and focus.
Soda can make attendees jittery. Serving sugary drinks increases the chance of a sugar high followed by a crash. This can cause problems if attendees must return to work after the meeting. Instead of soda, consider serving coffee and tea, bottled water, or apple and orange juice. Just make sure you keep the coffee fresh and have lots of bottled water on hand.
As the meeting planner, it is your job to decide what food to serve your guests. Although you’ll probably serve a full meal if you expect your meeting to last all day, it’s important to offer snacks as well. Serving snacks alone is appropriate if your meeting will only last an hour or two. Whatever the case, you’ll want to have a few snacks ready before your meeting begins.
Fresh vegetables can help keep your attendees focused and satisfied. Consider serving a vegetable and hummus platter like our Hummus Trio. This platter comes with toasted flatbread, matchstick veggies, and classic, roasted red pepper, and pesto hummus. This is the perfect choice for every attendee, even vegetarians.
Sometimes a meeting requires a little more than vegetables and dip. Our Assorted Silver Dollar Sandwich Rolls provide a satisfying lunch that won’t weigh down your attendees or make them feel tired. These bite-size sandwich rolls come with house chips and a cookie platter and can be made vegetarian to ensure the satisfaction of every attendee.
Chips & Dip
Chips provide a fast and convenient option for an afternoon meeting. Silver Spoon Caterers offers house-made tortilla chips paired with our house salsa and signature guacamole. We also offer the option to add our house chips and herb dip to your tortilla chip order.
Nuts provide attendees with the energy they need to stay focused and alert. They also provide a convenient work meeting snack that doesn’t make a mess. Silver Spoon Caterers’ Nuts medley includes pistachios, hazelnuts, and honey roasted nuts served with individual Greek Yogurts.
Our Power Hour is the perfect choice for quick meetings that require the attention and focus of attendees. This option includes house-made granola bars, individual Greek yogurts, and a fresh fruit bowl.
